For 2011, the Top Ten List of Frequently Challenged Books, compiled annually by the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF), ranged from Lauren Myracle‘s ―ttyl‖ series to stalwarts such as Brave New World, which was published 1932 — 80 years ago! — but is still a regular on the list; from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian to The Hunger Games (published in 2008 and made into a film that is now a smash box-office success).

I’ve read The Hunger Games, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, and To Kill a Mockingbird. None of them have content I would in any way deem unsuitable for their intended audiences so I’m surprised they’re on here.
